UFC's newest light heavyweight contender, Gegard Mousasi, hints at possible return to middleweight

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

One and done? Despite a successful debut at UFC on FUEL TV 9 earlier this month in Sweden, top light heavyweight striker Gegard Mousasi is already talking about a move back to 185 pounds.

I guess asking trolling polling the fans is all the rage these days.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White dusted off the Brock Lesnar vs. Fedor Emelianenko debate a few months back with this post, and now it looks as if top light heavyweight contender Gegard Mousasi is also hinting at something fans never expected to happen.

A return to 185 pounds.

A return to his old stomping grounds is not just a pipe dream for Mousasi.

After securing the Cage Warriors middleweight championship back in 2006, "The Dreamcatcher" went on to become the DREAM middleweight champion, as well as win the promotion's 185-pound grand prix tournament, defeating Melvin Manhoef and Ronaldo Souza along the way.

Not bad for a guy who once claimed he wanted to be heavyweight champion of the world.

Mousasi (34-3) was able to capture the Strikeforce light heavyweight title and made a successful Octagon debut against Ilir Latifi earlier this month in Sweden (see it again here), but you know what they say about the grass always being greener on the other side.

Alright then, fight fans, answer the man's question. Are you interested?
